Joint Annual Health Review

JAHR 2007: Joint Annual Health Review

The Joint Annual Health Review (JAHR), undertaken by the Ministry of Health and development partners in 2007 is the first of its kind in Viet Nam. This report is based on the concern of the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the development partners that Viet Nam’s health sector is facing many new challenges and that it is necessary to gain a deeper understanding of these health problems through discussions between relevant agencies to facilitate the process of reforming the sector, as well as ensuring that resources are allocated appropriately in order to meet national development and health goals.

Overview

The Joint Annual Health Review (JAHR), undertaken by the Ministry of Health and development partners in 2007 is the first of its kind in Viet Nam. This report is based on the concern of the Ministry of Health (MOH) and the development partners that Viet Nam’s health sector is facing many new challenges and that it is necessary to gain a deeper understanding of these health problems through discussions between relevant agencies to facilitate the process of reforming the sector, as well as ensuring that resources are allocated appropriately in order to meet national development and health goals.

The JAHR 2007 comprehensively addressed the major segments of the Vietnamese health care system, including: 1) Health status and health determinants; 2) Organization and management of the health system; 3) Health human resources; 4) Health financing; and 5) Provision of health services. Based on a situation analysis and problem assessment of the health sector across the five segments mentioned above, the review made recommendations on possible solutions to issues of priority for 2008 and subsequent years.
